Why choose telehealth

Video consults (Telehealth) can be effective for the following:

  • Professional assessment and remote treatment of spinal and limb conditions
  • Rehabilitation programs following injury or surgery
  • Sports injury management
  • Specialised assessment and management of back and neck problems
  • Chest and respiratory physiotherapy
  • Flexibility programs
  • Physiotherapy delivered exercise programs

Video Consults have shown near-perfect agreement with face to face consults in the diagnostic and management decisions relating to patients with lumbar spine, knee and shoulder pain and post joint surgery (Cottrell, 2018; Pastora-Bernal, 2017).

Your Physio will be able to:

  • Diagnose your injury
  • Educate you about the mechanics of how it occurred
  • Refer you to a specialist if required or for medical imaging
  • Provide advice on activities to avoid
  • Provide rehabilitation exercises, stretches, advice on the recommended treatment
  • Check the technique of certain exercises or stretches.

Your Physio can show you self-massage and treatment techniques to ease your pain and stiffness.
